Why You Should Aerate Your Lawn

Aeration is the antidote to the heavily compacted soil, which may be present on a lawn that gets very heavy foot traffic, or which is planted on a soil base that is heavy in clay content. It rarely is necessary where soils are on the sandy side. Another good reason to keep your lawn in shape is to protect it for to ensure your paving in Dublin does not become overrun with grass seeds .Core aeration is sometimes advertised as a solution to problems with thatch; however, it does not do much to relieve that problem if thatch is already present.

Where thatch is a genuine problem, a true de thatching operation is a better solution. However, de thatching is a fairly violent action to a lawn, and an annual core aeration may well prevent thatch problems in the first place.

If you have the type of soil and conditions that require lawn aeration, you can do it once each year. It does not hurt your lawn, and in fact, will make it healthier and more attractive. Some people dislike the look of the small plugs of soil and turf that are pulled up and scattered over the lawn, and if so, you can rake them up. Left on the lawn, though, they will quickly break up and decompose.

When to Aerate Your Lawn

Spring is not the ideal time to aerate the lawn, but circumstances may require it. If the soil is so compacted that existing grass can’t grow, it may be necessary to aerate in the spring. Generally, though, spring aerating is discouraged because the aeration holes provide a perfect spot for weed seeds to germinate. Weeds seeds are the first seeds to germinate in the spring, and aerating the lawn just stirs them up and gives them an ideal home.

If spring over seeding is the goal, slice seeding can be done, or seed can be sown and top dressed to provide adequate germination conditions.

But the very best time to aerate is in the fall when the temperatures have cooled off, when the weed pressure is minimal, and when grass is actively growing.
